Master’s "Slaves to Society" Set For Summer Release on Ibex Moon Records

Master’s "Slaves to Society" CD with bonus tracks will be released on Ibex Moon Records this Summer

MASTER, originally from Chicago, IL now resides in the Czech Republic featuring members Paul Speckmann bass and vocals (Abomination, Death Strike, Speckmann Project, ex-Krabathor, Martyr (Cze), ex-War Cry, Funeral Bitch (US), Solutions, Walpurgisnacht (US)) Alex Nejezchleba lead and rythem guitars , (Shaark, Mamut (Cze)), Zdenek Pradlovsky Drums (Shaark, Kreyson). MASTER was formed in late 1983 and released nine full-length albums on Nuclear Blast, Twilight Vertrieb, Displeased, System Shock and Pavement. Paul Speckmann and Master have had an important impact on the development of extreme metal, including being a major influence on bands like Napalm Death, Death, Benediction, Terrorizer, Nausea, Carcass, Pestilence, and many more, not to mention pretty much the entire early 90’s Swedish death metal scene.

John McEntee, owner of Ibex Moon Records comments:
"In the 80’s when I started really getting into the metal underground I would have never thought one day I would be releasing a recording by one of my favorite bands and biggest influences MASTER. For me and most other die hard underground metallers in the 80’s and early 90’s understand the massive impact MASTER has had on the world of extreme metal. Most of the extreme bands that have gone on to massive success in the early 90’s wave of death metal would be lying if they said they weren’t affected one way or another by the powerful aggressive songs of MASTER. 'Slaves to Society' is quite possibly MASTER’S most aggressive album released to date and I’m honored to be working with them."

Paul Speckmann states, "This is an album that deals with the situation happening in the world today. We are all Slaves of the greater machine, just Slaves To Society."

Ibex Moon Records will be releasing MASTER’s "Slaves to Society" in early Summer 2008. The exact release date will be announced soon.
